Many people and diverse factors have entered into the making of South Carolina and have left their imprint on her place names, giving wide variety and strong individuality to the titles of cities, towns, plantations, islands, mountains, and streams. This volume, originally compiled by the WPA, explores the history of many of those names. Many towns are named for places in England; others bear Spanish, French, German, or Indian names. Some names show the influence of the surrounding flora and fauna, others honor families of importance, and others point to geographical features. Some are whimsical - Round O, Hell Hole Swamp, Devil's Woodyard, and Granny's Quarter Creek. Bookseller Inventory # 128
